Summary

Server and memory issues on Mac OS X 10.6.2

Description of the issue

We've been experiencing issues with memory for some time with backups and verification turned on.   This seems to use up all the available memory in a short period of time and then all the databases run extremely slow...   We have found one way to increase the speed which is to install CHUD tools and type "purge" at the command line.   However, this does not work in 64bit kernels.  Why doesn't filemaker server automatically give back the memory?  Bad garbage collection??? Question:   When running server, which kernel is preferred?  64bit or 32bit?   How can we increase the performance of FM Server? Thanks for ANY help with this. Steve
